Preliminary
Before I even go into actually talking about the series. Kawagoe who has done the previous getter OVA's minus Getter Robo Armageddon's first 2 ep is once again charge of this series so that's already a plus for Ishikawa fans. For better or worse Kawagoe is extremely faithful to Ishikawa stuff even if he'll introduce other elements of Ishikawa's works into the series along with his own little spins like Black Getter in Armageddon. Should also be noted that characters in both TV version back in the 70s and the OVA versions we got in the late 90's and early 2000's were read more

Preliminary
Story: First arc was decent enough though I didn't care for how cartoonishly antagonistic some people were but that seems to just be a staple. My real gripe as of where I'm at is the 2nd arc just undoes every aspect of the first arc. Think of it as a an expansion/patch in some cases in a MMO you play WoW or some other game you play. The countless hours you grind trying to get that slot they introduced file is now pointless cause they added a new mechanic/slot in the game that makes that old slot you worked so hard towards read more

As of writing this we know the forecasting for the rest of 2021 and 2022...Aikatsu Planet was a mistake but it has some decent parts to it.

I'll honestly break each section as I view it into 2 parts, live action and then animated as I feel they should be judged separately. Sound and Character will be combined into 1 as I will use it to focus on the acting quality of people as both actor and seiyuu but will be again split between live action and anime

Story(As a whole)- 2: It's just really bad. MC gets handed a top tier character cause the read more

I'll be upfront the anime adaption skips about 85% of all character development of the supporting cast just to focus on Hori and Miyamura. The anime literally skips over so much stuff to add to all the characters just to focus the main 2 and honestly feels like the studio could care less about the rest of the cast which adds to everything. The poster where it shows a large cast it should just be cut to hori and miymamura as they don't give a crap about the rest.

Art 8: This is one of the strongest points I can give it as it adds to read more

For fall 2020...this was the biggest let down to be honest.

Story and characters had so much potential but the 11 ep run just caused the series to never really flesh out out what really needed to be there. This was a 24 ep character drama forced into 11 ep with the finale literally cutting into multiple character arcs without any clear resolution for 2 of the 3.

Art was solid...outside of the really mediocre 3DCG. Even if the back drop was gymnastics the CGI was bad especially for MAPPA standards. It was PS1/Cyberpunk 2077 on a ps4/xbox one levels of bad. The read more

I'll be upfront before I even go into this movie. I've seen a lot of Shinkai's works prior to Your Name before it was even a thing. Your Name was honestly weaker compared to a number of other films that he used the same exact plot over and over.

Now with that out of the way

Story is a solid 9:
In my opinion his story telling finally broke past the usual "people who love each other are separated and never see each other again/reunite after being away/forgetting each other." This was honestly his trope for most of his movies and you can read more

Start off while grouped as 1 whole series it has 4 effective seasons with 2 different Main characters. First half focuses on Hoshimiya Ichigo and then second half with Oozora Akari.

Characters as a whole are really well done with their character arcs and even the more supporting ones get episodes dedicated to them and show growth throughout the series. Of course some are more fleshed out than others but as a whole they all come into their own natural roles and feels natural. Some support characters do feel very 1 note even with their character arc they go through as they have read more

I'd say s2 of friends is the definition of missed opportunities but still enjoyable.

Character: 9
S1 characters are still as they are and build off everything from s1. The 2 new characters and the 1 support introduced to the cast are enjoyable in their own rights. All 3 could have used a bit more development but still good as a whole.

Art: 8
Similar to Stars and friends s1. If you liked the designs there you will enjoy them here to. Same goes for the dress designs.

Sound: 6.5
Here's one of the 2 biggest issues with friends s2. Like s1 of friends they read more

Before I start I'd like to just state as of this I've only seen S1 of Aikatsu Friends so I'm still pretty new into the franchise.

Story Wise: 6.5
I may have given it a 7 in the but that's only because the rating system allows but I don't believe it deserves a 6.
To be honest I'm very mixed on aspects of Aikatsu Stars. The first season 1-50 was really enjoyable as we got the growth of all the characters who were more than just background characters. I tend to classify characters in to 3 groups. Main, Main Supporting, and Sub Supporting. Sub read more
